   It looks like Albert Pujols won't be taking a polygraph test to resolve his defamation case against Jack Clark.  

   Pujols is suing Clark for calling him a "juicer" on his radio show back in August.  

   Clark's attorney suggested in a letter earlier this week that the dispute could be resolved if both men took lie-detector tests.  

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Martin Singer, a Los Angeles attorney representing Pujols, wrote back, calling the suggestion "an absurd publicity ploy."  Singer wrote that his client is willing to testify under oath in a court of law, where it counts.  

    Clark's radio show was canceled after his on-air comments that former Pujols trainer Chris Mihlfeld had confided in him about shooting up Pujols with performance-enhancing drugs in 2000.  Mihlfeld denies speaking with Clark.

The feud between former Cardinals sluggers Albert Pujols and Jack Clark has taken another turn.

It all started when Jack Clark went on the air this summer, accused Pujols of using performance enhancing drugs. Pujols then threatened to sue Clark and the radio station that employed him, which led to Clark's termination.

Monday, Clark's lawyer Albert Watkins sent a letter to Pujols' attorney, requesting that the former Cardinals MVP take a polygraph test to prove he didn't use steroids. The letter states that if Pujols won't take a polygraph, Watkins has been instructed to proceed with a highly charged, entertaining, and public spectacle.

Pujols has always vehemently denied any steroid use.
